I went for a run along this beach and could not see anything that was appealing about it. Lots of plastic debris littered most of the beach and the sand just did not look great. The water from the Seine must be suspect and the...More

We cycled the 10 or so minutes along a safe cycle path to this beach a couple of times. It is sandy and convenient and there's a beach cafe selling snacks, drinks and ice creams. It's not a very pretty beach but it's long and...More

watch the ships roll lazily in, and watch the ships roll lazily away, this is a sandy beach, suitable for kids, there is parking opposite a road that isn't as busy as its size suggests. We preferred this to Trouville

We walked out along to the point in an effort to get excercise which achieved our intention. The walk is interesting in so far as you can watch the lock gates opening and closing allowing access to and from the Seine. As you walk out...More

The beach is an immense emptiness of sand, with great views of the harbor of Le Havre. Strolling up steam the river will give you views of the Pont de Nomandie. Recommended for a nice walk. Easy parking connected to the beach by a pedestrian...More

We were more impressed by this beach than we expected to be. We spent a few hours there on the fringe of the dunes people and boat watching, including the arrival of a cruise ship to Honfleur. Good view of the Ponte de Normandy and...More

The views of the cliffs from the beach are great. The same views that are to be seen in many paintings by the impressionist artists in the 1870-1910 period. The views from the walking path along the cliffs are even better (the path goes up...More

A strange beach with a view of the industrial city of Le Havre. Not really a swimming beach but good for searching for dead clams! The tides. Come in and out so you have to be careful of the rising water.

It is a long plage, very clean (at the time i was there). Beautifull nature if you can avoid seeing the great port of Le Havre on the other side.
